is beginning to take shape around, yes, of course, the repeal of obama care. and last night at a heritage foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation sa
increases even before there was such a thing as obama care. if you look at the specific fees cited by u.p.s. as a reason for dropping them they are a pittance compared to what the rise in health care has been. it raises the question to me just because the possibility, because they are saying it's because obama care, maybe it's an opportunity for the company to save some money and pin it on something controversial. >> we should consider that this sort of thing should have been anticipated and very easy to blame the companies but in fact the policy may be flawed. a lot of companies, large franchise companies saying that their franchisees will most likely once obama care kicks in reduce flows fewer hours because of the health care costs. you would think when they were planning -- when they were planning for this they would have anticipated these sorts of things. there's this poll in july that the "wall street journal" did, the commission showed 47% of the american people is against obama care at this point. support for obama care is down to 34%. then these stories come out. you get the sen
evidence and now, of course, what comes next, barack obama is now moving closer to military strike. "boston globe" also talking about a coming military strike. it looks like it's probably going to happen. let's get to news. >> top u.s. officials now say chemical weapons were used in da masses cas and the president is considering a limited military strike on select targets inside the country. yesterday u.n. inspectors visited the site of the attacks and though low expectations for what their probe will uncover, secretary of state john kerry says there is little doubt as to what happened there. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the contents of the world. p it defies any code of more reality. let me be clear. the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. the reported number of victims the reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, the firsthand accounts from humanitarian organizations, these all strongly indicate that everything these images are already screaming at us, is real
. it is a folly built on a fantasy that doing this is going to get the approval of the senate and barack obama. it is never going to happen. so you are going to shut down the government for no reason. yesterday mitt romney weighed in on it. >> the former presidential candidate told a group of donors that the plan led by conservatives would hurt national security. that doesn't make it easy for some republican lawmakers like north carolina congressman. >> this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? i want yes or no. no. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> this guy has probably voted to get rid of obama care 20 times. i mean, they take the vote every week. >> 40 times. >> they voted 40 times. so you now have this happening all over america. i said it the other day. i know there are stupid people on the internet and they have to do something. >> they don't like your pants. >> they are wandering the streets, going to get hit by cars or in mama's basement. rather than be in mama's basement writing stup
. america has come a long way in 50 years. and the fact that barack obama is president of the united states means we can finish this journey toward what dr. king dreamed about. >> i can't help but think 50 years lighter all the things that martin luther king talked about are in place, racism, poverty, inequality. to see an african-american president up there in front of the lincoln memorial today. think about barack obama who had just turned 2 a few weeks prior when the speech was made. his mother and probably his grandparents were watching it, living in a segregated country where fire hoses were turned on americans. what a moment today. put the politics aside. to see that man 50 years later standing on the same step where martin luther king stood. >> it is amazing. wla last night he had a reception at the white house. when i waps standing in the east room and they brought in dr. king's sister and i saw the picture of george washington and looked at president obama it brought tears to my eyes. i was only 8 years old when the march happened. they never could have dreamed that the president o
as president obama. >> yeah, joe. david cameron really shocked because it was defections within his own party that caused ta defeat and if president obama decides to take action against the assad regime it appears he will be doing so without the support of our two strongest european allies. after an eight-hour debate the british parliament voted to reject a limited strike against syria. >> why is it that our allies in the middle east like saudi emirates, qatar, kuwait and others, cannot take military action, why does it fall on us yet again? >> put simply, is it in britain's national interest to maintain an international taboo about the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield, my argument is question it is. >> i take a question from the scottish national party. >> does he know if there are any plans over the last few days for any military action before next week, planned at all against syria? >> i obviously can't discuss the details of potential action in detail in front of this house, but i can tell the house that american president and i have had discussions that have been reported in th
. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an
cancelinging president obama's planned bilateral talks with his russian counterpart. president obama and vladimir putin were expected to sit down and discuss, among other things, syria's ongoing civil war. the kremlin said it is disappointed by the cancellation. the decision reportedly unanimous by the president's national security team. the icy standoff rekindles a debate between mitt romney and president obama during the 2012 campaign. >> this is to russia that this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. they fight every cause for the world's worst actors. the idea that he has more flexibility in mind for russia is very, very troubling, indeed. >> governor romney, i'm glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single
shelling in the area. on saturday, president obama reviewed a range of options and possible targets with his national security team. the u.s. has already four destroyers nearby in the mediterranean sea, two within missile range. members of congress are comparing the situation to kosovo calling for surgical strikes using cruise missiles. >> i think we have to respond and i think we have to respond in conjunction with our nato allies, respond much as was done in libya with the nato allies and i think we cannot afford to sit back and wait. >> president assad says this morning, quote, failure awaits the united states if it attacks. comparing a conflict with syria to vietnam. >> well, i don't know. we could just kill you. actually. it wouldn't really be hard to find you and kill you. >> there is that. >> i mean, i don't think it's going to take us -- >> here's reuters. >> showing tepid support at home. only 25% of americans would want the u.s. to intercede, down five points from two weeks ago. andrew roberts writes in the "wall street journal," it takes a barbarian to employ poison gas.
to defund obama care. so ted cruz, he's a player. >> just ask him. >> no. listen, he's going to iowa and people are going -- >> people like him. people are excited about him. >> why? >> i think he taps into -- >> because he's a cade nade yan. >> the sinking sarah palin base, people that were excited about sarah palin, have now transferred to ted cruz. >> and michele bachmann. >> so that is a vibrant part of the republican party, love them or hate them, they look every two to four years for someone that will champion their animosity towards the large federal bureaucracy. >> it's resentment. >> animosity. >> resentment. but it's the sarah palin supporters, the herman cain supporters in a sense the donald trump supporters. you line them all up and that's -- and we have people going out there -- who knows. maybe cruz is going towards 2016 more powerful because instead of tripping over, you know, sarah palin and herman cain and michele bachmann and all these other people, maybe he has that space all to himself. >> but what -- >> and then there's rand paul the libertarian. >> which is so m

clinton. senator elizabeth warren and president obama round out the top four. governor christie's position dips when only republicans are polled, drops to eighth behind the list of candidates behind the party's presidential nomination in 2016. first thing is first, what on earth is a temperature meter or whatever we're calling this? >> yes. so they call this the feeling thermometer. we're into feelings and we ask you how do you feel about these politicians. so 0 is stone cold. 100 is burning up. and we saw there the president coming in fourth. the most surprising number in that poll, you mentioned senator elizabeth warren, now the senior senator from massachusetts, coming in at number 3. the other thing that really struck us, how far christie fell when you ask just republicans, interestingly enough number one, when you ask just republicans, paul ryan, mitt romney's running mate and then rand paul, ted cruz, jeb bush, scott walker of wisconsin, all coming in before christie. that points to the governor's real challenge. he has this amazing national popularity and following, on the cover of
